What to expect from Yum Brands earnings

Yum Brands Inc., parent company to fast-food restaurant chains KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell, is expected to report second-quarter earnings on Wednesday after the market closes.

Some analysts believe the second quarter will be a quiet one for Yum due to the value-price driven environment across the quick-service industry and increased competition both domestically and abroad.

Some also say now is the time to invest in the fast-food company because the future, after the company spins off its China business later this year, will be bright.

Yum shares have an average overweight rating among 27 analysts polled by FactSet. The average target price is $86.51. 

Earnings: Analysts polled by FactSet expect earnings of 74 cents per share, up from 69 cents per share for the same period last year.

Estimize, a software platform that gathers estimates from buy-side analysts, hedge-fund managers, academics and others, is expecting EPS of 76 cents per share.

Revenue: Analysts surveyed by FactSet expect revenue of $3.09 billion, down from $3.12 billion last year.

The Estimize crowdsourced estimate is for $3.10 billion in revenue.

And what is your expectations?
